The Friends of DalesBus is a voluntary organisation campaigning for accessible and affordable public transport for visitors and residents within the Yorkshire Dales. We celebrated our 20th anniversary in 2016.
For public transport information in the area please visit the DalesBus website, and follow @DalesBus on Twitter.
We welcome new members and your support and suggestions.
The Friends of DalesBus manage a Bus Operating Fund, to which passengers can make donations to support bus services. These funds are transferred to the Dales & Bowland Community Interest Company to invest in services, along with other fundraising.
We assist with publicity, and organise the DalesBus Ramblers programme of free guided walks, so that buses and trains in the area are well used and supported by fares as much as possible.
We now have local Transport Action Groups working in the South West Dales (Malhamdale and Ribblesdale), Upper Wharfedale, Wensleydale, Swaledale and Nidderdale.
The group currently has around 300 members, but we are keen to encourage more people to join and help support public transport in the Yorkshire Dales. Members receive a newsletter, including information on public transport changes.
